Kinder Morgan’s TGP receives FERC approval for producer-certified gas pooling service proposal

July 1, 2022
Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. received approval for its producer-certified gas aggregation pooling service from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. LLC (TGP), a Kinder Morgan Inc. subsidiary, received approval July 1 for its producer-certified gas (PCG), or responsibly sourced gas (RSG), aggregation pooling service from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

The service is now available at all pooling points across the TGP system. Kinder Morgan said in a release July 1. PCG is conventional natural gas sourced from production facilities that have been certified by a qualified third party to meet certain environmental, social and governance standards that typically focus on management practices for methane emissions, water usage, and community relations, according to Kinder Morgan. The service is designed to enable shippers on TGP to purchase and sell PCG supply at non-physical pooling locations, ultimately serving end-users, utilities, power plants and LNG facilities connected to the TGP system.

Parties who have obtained certifications from qualified third-party organizations are supplying the PCG needed for the pooling service, and the supply is expected to grow, the company continued.

TGP is an 11,760-mile pipeline system that transports natural gas supplied from the northeast US to end-use demand markets including New York City and Boston in the Northeast, the Louisiana and Texas Gulf Coast, and Mexico.
